5th Sunday Song Service was  held on May 29, 2011 at Cherry Street Church  of Christ.  Bro. Larry Miles video taped the  singing.    Click here for the  audio and  video.  On of the  highlights in my  opinion (Larry Miles)  was   Bro. Joe Blansett leading a  couple of songs. Bro. Joe is  90 years old and  losing his sight and  can  lead  almost  every song in "Great Songs of the Church" by  memory.   The  individual song leaders and the  songs they  led are available on Bro.

DISCOVERED SOMETHING INTERESTING. If you have access to the world wide web – go to www.birthverse.com and just follow the instructions. You are a child of God, His treasured possession. He created you in His own image. He chose the day for you to be born. He has a plan and a purpose for your life. Find your birth verse – copy it – memorize it – keep it in your Bible.

BIRTHVERSE consists of 366 verses chosen from the 66 books of the Bible. Each verse correlates the chapter and verse with its month and day.

From Chuck Missler: “To those afraid they missed the rapture when it took place on Saturday, May 21, take comfort in knowing that the rest of us were left behind as well. We have no desire to disparage Harold Camping, the engineer who honestly believed he had mathematically worked out Judgment Day. His confidence was certainly misguided, but at least he wasn't right. The world still has more time.

To err is very human, and 89-year-old Camping and his followers are human. They've fallen into a trap that we all fall into, one from which few of us can claim immunity; they took an interpretation they pulled from the Scriptures and they took a dogmatic position on it. Unlike most of us, though, their misinterpretation had a Judgment Day right away. They didn't have to wait until the real Day had come to find out they were wrong.

There are certain matters about which the Bible is very clear. Those are doctrines we can all hold on to and should defend with all our hearts. Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins, and he rose again from the dead the third day (1Cor 15:3,4; 1John 2:2; Acts 10:39-40). There will be a judgment day (Rev 11:18; 20:12-13). Jesus is coming back (Act 1:11; Matt 26:64; Rev 1:7) and only God the Father knows when!

"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." - Matt 24:36
